About pockets...


I put pockets in everything I make. In the past (for some insane reason) I sometimes skipped this step. Then you try to put your money/keys in your pocket and - oops no pocket. Then the only logical next step is to put it/them in your bra. Then you have to hand your 10 year old son the keys to open the car door. Apparently your lightning quick reflexes aren't what they used to be and he realizes where the keys just came from.
"I am so not touching those keys."
"You do realize that you were breastfed , right?"
Now he's claiming that he's scarred for life. I'm not sure if it's from the breastfeeding or handling the keys that had briefly hung out in my bra.

The skirt that this pocket belongs to is also here, and here.

Hilarious story! That cheered me up (and converted me to go the extra mile and add pockets!).
Thanks for sharing this.

LOL - love it! I truly believe that opportunities like this to mentally traumatize your kids are a major parenting perk. :)

I put pockets on everything too. I also cut two of them as I go, so that I can sew the same size onto my 19-month-old's clothes (she needs bigger pockets for baby treasures). Those are adorable though, little tulips!

Hi there, been following for a while but had to link to this post today, just made me laugh. I frequently only have the bosom to keep keys/camera/phone etc in, but my kids are small enough to be fascinated, not freaked out. I linked over here, hope that was all right. http://www.sycamorecornercrafts.com
Please keep sharing your pattern adventures, I don't sew much for myself these days but love to see your looks. Carolyn
